I have MythTV all but working completly ... i.e all the pluggins work, the
remaining is LiveTV.
The issue is this:
When I go to change channel, the backend spits out lots of messages saying
it cannot find
entries for channel 1..90 (i.e lots of lines of individual channels it
cannot find ) in my channel setup.(..this is when I change channels on the
remote of keyboard )
Ok, I only receive 5 channels here, XMLTV downloaded TV1,TV2,Tv3,TV4 and
Prime for the free-to-air channels in New Zealand. It uses tv_grab_nz for
the grabbing. Now here is the rub.
I do a mythfilldatabase after the tv_grab_nz stage and go into the
"channel setup" menu in setup.
All the XMLTV ID's are there but no relating channel numbers. Is this
Anyhow, I find out (from xawtv) what channels relate to which ID and enter
them in ... is
that what I am meant to do? Seems strange, as Freevo works all this out
for you automagically.
Also on the second page of the "channel setup" is a Frequency ID field,
what is this?
Am I mean't to put each channels frequency in there .... seems unnecessary.
This whole channel thing is very confusing, as there is no documentation
on how to set
this up correctly .... almost as though it's all meant to "just work"
(xawtv has a file that relates channel name to channel no to frequency,
what does that in MythTv?)
I would really like to be able to use LiveTV ... at the moment I can only
watch the default
channel (11 which is TV4... I think).
I'm not sure if the issue is with tv_grab_nz or mythfilldatabase or MythTV.
Anyone shed some light. Sorry I can't give a printout of the error, as my
network card is down
